    A few data points:

    - The Force Awakens novelization establishes that Snoke saw the rise and fall of the Empire, so he was around during the Clone Wars (although we don't know where he was at the time or what he was doing).

    - The novelization also states that Snoke was away of Kylo Ren's birth and working to turn him to the dark side from the beginning. Leia was aware of this and unsuccessfully tried to prevent it.

    - A Star Wars Insider magazine article reprinted a Tweet from Pablo Hidalgo confirming that Leia and Snoke know each other, although the exacts are TBD.

    Plagueis was Palpatine's Teacher. His specialty was force control. Specifically healing

    - Palpatine supposedly killed Plagueis in his sleep. Plagueis probably went into some sort of coma and it took a while to put himself back together
    - In the book, (although I'm a bit sketchy) The test Plagueis gave to Palpatine was to kill his father. Kylo Ren followed those footsteps.
    - Plagueis was referred to as "The Wise" Snoke was also regarded as wise
    - It was said Plagueis is going to be a new character.
    Snoke is not going to be some obscure character that got mentioned once in the movies. If he's somebody at all, he's going to be somebody 80% of movie-goers are familiar with.
    So this Zealot comes to my door, all glazed eyes and clean reproductive organs, asking me if I ever think about God. So I tell him I killed God. I tracked God down like a rabid dog, hacked off his legs with a hedge trimmer, and boiled off his corpse in an acid bath. So he pulls an alternating-current taser on me and tells me that only the Official Serbian Church of Tesla can save my polyphase intrinsic electric field, known to non-engineers as "the soul". So I hit him. What would you do?

    I would be very surprised if Leia didn't know Snoke.

    Snoke is Snoke.

    The origin and connections I'm sure will come.

    Maybe he was the Imperial Dignitary who was having an audience with the Emperor in Return of the Jedi.

    Snoke is Ezra Bridger.

    I don't think they'll bring back a link to the prequels like that, The Force Awakens was a massive success and hardly acknowledged them at all. They're not going to mess with that formula. If Snoke turns out to "be" anyone, my money is on Sidious. It would be yet another wink to something the audience already knows and likes, and would require very little setup or explanation.
    As of now:
    All-Star Batman, Batman, Doom Patrol, The Flash, The Fix, The Flintstones, Green Valley, Hadrian's Wall, The Hellblazer, Moonshine, New Super-Man, Suicide Squad, Superman, 'Tec, Unfollow

    I see what you're doing there, with the "Dark Empire" plot of the Emperor having multiple clones of himself ready so when he died he would just pop into another body. BUT, I would think that Palpatine being who he is, would not go by another name - he'd go by his own name and essentially tell the universe "I'm back, you sonova $%^&es!!" They've also mentioned/stated somewhere that Snoke was "around" during the Emperor's reign, yeah? Personally I think he's somebody else. Perhaps somebody akin to Thrawn who is smart and power hungry, with Force/force-like abilities, but is not a Sith and not tied directly to the Emperor. And is not Darth Plageuis.
